Easyjet Geneva to Edinburgh - Duty free products

Hello everyone,

If someone had flown Easyjet from Geneva to Edinburgh recently, would appreciate if they could tell me what duty free spirits are available for sale on the flight. We are flying end of August and it would be easier to buy on the flight. Tried sending Easyjet a query but have had no response.

Thanks in advance

I fly that route often and although I never bought anything myself, I frequently hear the crew saying sorry, no we don't this or that, even although it's in the magazine..
Usually they have one type of vodka, one type of whiskey plus all the perfume and stuff. If there's any left.

Basically don't rely on it completely even it says it might be for sale. There's so much choice at better prices in both airports!

Thanks John. I think I will take your advice and buy something at the Geneva airport as I don't think I can buy at the Edinburgh airport on arrival.

You might find spirits in Denner, Aldi, Lidl are cheaper than airport duty free.

Yes the bottles are smaller, and yes you have to wrap them in a sweater and put in hold luggage.

Yeah I'd go for that, Denner especially, good selection and price. Or just go to Tesco in the Edinburgh
GVA airport ain't cheap for perfume or alcohol unless they have some real special offer on. cigarettes are half the UK price though.

Most perfume we buy in either Otto or Denner depending on their seasonal choice. Sometime have had to wait a few months for a particular one for a friend.

Brut for men, after shave & cologne is much cheaper in UK.
